Very Rough Storyboard Sequence

Obviously this would be more detailed with the Marmot coming in to peer at the man and carefully snatching the food, oh and the tail is hitting him around the face lol.

Tom and Jerry Inspiration

I really like the bit in this next video where Tom goes to eat the meet and it isnt there and it takes him a few seconds to realise... that could be quite funny for the man to do when the marmot has taken it. Also he could stand on the Marmot's tail like that

More Marmot Reference

I know we have plenty of videos, but I couldn't resist... I am starting to think that maybe the arms could be a bit bigger with the Marmot though, or the tail definitely should be.

This one is good showing the Marmot infront of the background environment, kind of like on the cliff at the end of our film

Also this video shows one moving, and how important the tail will be to the animation. I think we need to make it really big so that it can 'flap' around like this.

Rendering Again

Snatched Render Test from Hayley Allen on Vimeo.

Just been carrying on with my work for Dan and thought I would test a camera move on an animated model using the toon shader I used before.

I think we could really make this look awesome if we test it further, adding highlights or whatever.

Also, I thought it would look really effective if we didn't do it to the eyes and try to make them look realistic. They will stand out and also give a consistent point for the audience to look at.

Oh he is saying 'This is Sparta' by the way :P
